Hong Kong has been building public housing (subsidised by the Government) since the mid 1950's and approximately 49% of Hong Kong's population lives in some form of Government Housing! and currently there is a very long waiting list for this affordable housing. Depending on who is issuing the figures it is anything from 3 years to 7 years.

Man Cheung House in North Point on the eastern end of Hong Kong Island is a typical older example of this type of housing and it very tidy, clean, it has gardens and exercise area's and there is no graffiti in evidence. This is affordable housing Hong Kong style. 

 In the distance, my old school

The old red brick building on the hill was my first "high" school in Hong Kong in 1972.. we did move into new premises next door and even the new school from 1972 is going to be replaced by a brand new school, that show's how old I am!  

I have fond memories of Island School.

It would probably never occur to this chap that he looked like a muppet playing French music on an accordion - he looked like an extra from the old TV series Allo, Allo! plonker.
